Save ££££'s on your sale
Yesterday someone came into our modern homes sales office who’d just sold their contemporary, family home within one week of putting it on the market. Selling a lifetime home that quickly is pretty good by anyone’s standards, but what made this chap even happier was that he had no estate agent fees to pay… how? By selling his family home online.
Latest statistics say that a whopping 80% of people now start searching for their own unique home online, and in an era that is increasingly high tech this figure will only get bigger. Looking for luxury, modern homes online is easy as pie – just type what you’re looking for, i.e. contemporary homes, into Google and hey presto! But selling your current family home online and bypassing huge estate agent fees when buying your luxury home… surely that has to be a bit trickier, doesn't it?
TV contemporary homes expert, Sarah Beeny, has the solution to selling lifestyle homes in her new website www.tepilo.com which matches buyers and sellers, from family homes to modern, energy-efficient homes, without using an agent. Homeowners can upload details of their unique homes in under 15 minutes and the easy-to-use site is manageable even for the technophobes out there! All the information and documents are provided to assist in the purchase of your lifetime home, including help with Home Information Packs and even helpful reminders for viewings. Sarah’s new site is also completely free to use and could save homeowners thousands of pounds in agents' fees – I’ll certainly be giving it a go when it comes to selling my own contemporary home.
The internet is the most powerful tool available to us, so whether you are buying a luxury, modern home with a landscape garden or selling your energy-efficient home, get online!"
